Halsey Class fleet Frigate. A fully detailed minifig scale spaceship. It carries a complement of 20 crewmembers a six personnel airwing and a a 24 man platoon of space troopers. Its airwing consist of 6 snubie II class fighters (thanks to atomic toaster85). It is the largest vessel capable of conducting a 1g planetary landing so it is equipped with retractable landing gear. The airlock located on the underside of the ship is fully moonbase compliant Fully detailed interior and design pictures will follow. a debt of gratitude to legobendi for the wonderful computer room and weapons station

WoW! great vessel, love all the weapons systems and sensors, really like how you built the interior, the previous person maybe right i think, iw might be better to make your doors slide
I would love to have sliding doors (however I havent figure out how to do so effectivelly in LDD)I have two alternate designs that I will try on real bricks to see if they will work , before implementation. I am also contemplating changing the color two grey. We will see
Hey Rafael, thank you for the complement. I was referring to the interior doors on the ship. With the hinges set fully open, the doors won't be able to clear the opposite side of the door jamb; the hinge will have to open out rather than close away. If you set the hinge in an "L" shape, the door can open into the tiny space between the "L" legs. Unfortunately, it gets into the space of the room or hallway. And, double unfortunately, it would be a lot of work to alter the walls to the interior. Another option would be to redesign the doors with technic arms; the rounded ends may clear the jamb. I hope my explanation makes sense, interior doors have always been tough to hinge AND keep in the space of one brick. I think that's why I try to make all my doors slide. ;) Good luck! BTW, you should still be proud of this great vessel. Play well.

Looks like it would be pretty tough in battle! Great design. I think the doors with the hinges might not operate very well; but, all in all, quite impressive. Nice work!
Thanks for your comments. did you refer to the exterior airlock door or the interior room doors? If so, can you please tell me why you think they wont work. I might have to build a couple in real brick to test the concept, however your insights will be greatly appreciated. thanks again OBTW your upgraded ll928 is impressive.
